Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

I found that this fowls on the rear cowl ad rubs the paint and the plastic away.

Thanks! Are there any other  racks to be used instead of the grab handle?

I really dislike the long ones that go all the way below the cowl.

Shouldn't do if it is fitted right. I had one  for a while and didn't have that problem.
I sold it here because I really prefer a tank bag.

There's a Krauser rack on ebay at the moment that uses the grab rail fittings but is chunkier than the renntec one & follows the lines of the bike better too.

It's designed for their (rather pricey) K4 & K5 top boxes but can also be used alone or is even more versatile with an alurack replacing the K-wing.

I haven't had any trouble with paint rubbing off, mine is the same rack as in the photo. Absolute god-send when you've got a pillion!

Thank you, ashcroc, really useful information.

Also have a renntec like the one pictured. Mine doesn't touch the plastics anywhere. I cut the top bar off so I could lay luggage over the rear set and rack as in profile pic. Doesn't seem to have significantly affected strength, has been very solid.

I'm no longer looking for a rack, thanks all.
